Colorado Springs Traffic Accident Attorneys
Traffic accidents can be stressful and confusing experiences. Knowing what to do after being injured in an accident can be very difficult, and your mind will probably be racing, occupied with trying to process the aftermath of the experience.
Safety must always come first. If you or a loved one has been injured in an automobile or motorcycle accident, it is critical that you take the proper steps to protect yourself, and appropriately document any claim you might have.
You can do this by following these steps:
- Seek immediate medical attention – Even if you believe you are okay. Too many people think they are fine after an accident and later realize they are not. Adrenaline in your body can mask pain following an accident. Make sure to advise your physician of every injury and pain complaint that you have so that the records are well documented. This allows the physician to fully evaluate your care and recommend the appropriate treatment. Keep a journal of your injuries and pain complaints as some of these may be easily forgotten as time goes by. These important details will be helpful.
- If you have a camera or phone available, take pictures of your injuries and any property damage to your vehicle or motorcycle. We realize that taking photographs will not be the first thing on your mind but it will help strengthen your claim. Make sure you obtain, or that the officer provides you with, the names of all parties involved including their insurance information.
- Keep records of all time lost from work and any personal expenses you incur.
- Avoid talking to the insurance companies without consulting with an experienced Colorado Springs accident attorney first. The Rector Law Firm, reachable at (719) 578-1106, always offers free no-obligation consultations, so take advantage of this.
